My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 188
Sebastian Came As Well
Now that Leo had defeated all of the orcs that were around the village entrance, Mr. Hannes rushed towards me.
I was relieved to see that he was unharmed.
In the meantime, Leo continued to attack the remaining orcs.
Leo really was strong.
“Hahaha. I wasn’t much use, outside of buying a little time. I’m just glad that Leo is here. If you’re going to thank anyone, thank her.”
“Of course, we are very grateful towards Leo. But we are grateful to you as well, Mr. Takumi. We had enough time to prepare, because you stayed here and fought… Besides, I was moved at how desperate you were on our behalf.”
“Now you’re exaggerating. I only fought the orcs that were already right in front of me.”
“No, that’s not true. You bought us plenty of time. Without that…they would have swarmed into the village and caught us off guard.”
“…Well, if it was a help to you, then I am glad.”
While I thought he was saying too much, if my training had allowed me to be of use, then that was good.
I could not claim to have defeated many orcs, but I had been able to slow them down with my light magic.
“Oh, Leo. So it’s done?”
“Thank you, good Leo.”
As I spoke with Mr. Hannes, Leo returned after defeating the last orc.
Very good, Leo.
“Thank you, Leo. Thank you so much.”
I thanked Leo while petting her thoroughly.
While there was still a sharp pain in my head, it wasn’t too bad now, and I could move just fine.
Leo wagged her tail happily and looked very pleased to be petted.
“Still, why are you here, Leo? Didn’t you go back with Phillip?”
“Wuff? Wuff-wuff-wuff… Wuff! Wuff. Grau. Wou-wuff-wuff-wuff. Grau. Wuff.”
I supposed that Leo was answering my question, but it was so long that I didn’t understand her.
Perhaps the pain in my head was making it difficult for me to concentrate.
Usually, I have no trouble understanding her…
“Sorry, Leo. I’m not sure what you are saying…”
Leo looked crestfallen when she heard this.
I really was sorry. It was just the pain.
“I will explain it to you, Mr. Takumi.”
While I was apologizing to Leo, a voice rang from behind me.
It was a familiar voice, but…surely he would not be here…?
“…Sebastian!? Why are you here!?”
“Hohoho. Good Leo carried me. She really is a fast runner.”
I held my head and turned around. And there was the old man with the gentle smile and sharp eyes…Sebastian.
“I didn’t expect to see Leo here, but now even you…?”
“We can talk about that later. First, we should deal with this mess.”
“Ah, that’s right.”
“Mr. Hannes. We must treat the wounded. Also…can you deal with the dead monsters?”
“Yes! Of course! I’ll call the people who know how to do it!”
If I couldn’t understand Leo, I could just ask Sebastian.
However, Sebastian said that it was more important to deal with the current situation.
…Which was obvious, as there were people who were wounded… So the explanation could wait.
And so Mr. Hannes went off towards the other villagers.
“Ah, that’s right, Sebastian!”
“What is it?”
I was going to leave things to him, when I suddenly remembered something.
The merchants. They had escaped as soon as they unleashed the orcs.
I didn’t know how much time had passed, but we should be able to chase after them and take them prisoner.
“There are people who brought those orcs here. I believe…they went towards Ractos on horseback…”
The village entrance was on the west side…which was in the direction of Ractos, and they had been moving in a straight line.
…Though, it was possible they would make a turn later on…
“Hmm…I saw two people on horseback on the way here… Could it be them?”
“If there were two horse riders, then I think it is likely them.”
“I see… We prioritized getting here as soon as possible… But I do remember being suspicious.”
“Those two were the people that brought the glass sphere that Phillip had. And the ones who unleashed the orcs on us!”
So, Sebastian had seen them on the way here while riding on Leo.
In that case, it was likely that they really hadn’t changed course, and were heading towards Ractos.
“I see… Very well. We will chase after them at once. Johanna!”
After he understood this much, Sebastian made the decision immediately and called Johanna.
I hadn’t realized it until now, but she was helping the wounded villagers a short distance away.
And Phillip was there as well.
“We will borrow horses from Mr. Hannes…the chief, and head to Ractos. As they are on horseback, we must go quickly.”
“Ah, wait a minute!”
“What is it, Mr. Takumi?”
I stopped Sebastian and Johanna as they were about to leave.
There was a better way than to follow the merchants on horses.
“We’ll have Leo chase after them. She is much faster.”
“…Indeed…but are you sure? …Shouldn’t she stay with you…”
“I will go too. Is that all right, Leo?”
